Advertising is another revenue-generating module of GoClixy that you can use to promote or sell a product, service or idea of a business owner. You can also charge your users for displaying their listings, products, services, etc. at the top of the category and search result pages.
GoClixy supports two types of Pricing: Fixed and Campaign.
Fixed Ad: You can specify a duration and price for the fixed Ad Type. These types of Ad cannot be paused, they will run for the specified duration of time.
Campaign Ad: A user can select Tags, Category and Cities in Campaign Ads. The cost will be calculated based on the bid set on Tags, Categories and Cities.
A user can pause a Campaign Ad. The payment will be automatically deducted from Wallet on Ad click. The Ad will run until the user has cash in their wallet.
All Ads Impressions and Clicks are stored in a separate table for reporting purposes. You can set a duration to automatically delete them. Set a value greater than 0 in the Ads View Purge Duration field to automatically delete all Ads view after the specified number of days. Ad Views are deleted using Cronjob.
You can also change the default PPC (Pay Per Click) costs as per your requirements. These are the default costs assigned automatically to all Tags, Categories, and Cities.
In a Campaign Ad, the user has the option of setting a Bid for each keyword to display their Ad on top places. The user can also subscribe to notifications on the keyword's Bid change. On a Bid change, the respective user will be automatically notified via Cronjob. As an Admin, you can also send notifications to users manually via the Bid Notifications tab.
Check the checkboxes to send notifications to all Bid subscribed users.
By default, all keywords (tags, categories, and cities) CPC and CPD are taken from Settings, but you can also specify a different cost for some specific keywords.
Similarly, a user can purchase an Ad through the Member Area by clicking the Advertise With Us link.
